his foreign policy and so on. that's what john sununu didn't want people debating, in my view. i think he quite deliberately played that race card to change the thinking of people who may be in two minds about who to vote for, you know what, this is actually about a black man voting for a black man. >> if it was an intentional dismissal, using race in that way, it just heightens the level of sinisterness of such a comment and it belies in many ways the truth of who colin powell is. >> let's play a clip from president obama today. this is what he said about it. >> any suggestion that general powell would make such a profound statement in such an important election based on anything other than what he thought was what's going to be best for america i think doesn't make much sense. >> sununu issued a statement afterwards which i found fairly laughable. colin powell's a friend, i respect the endorsement decision he made. i do not doubt it was based on anything but his support of the president's policies. piers morgan's question was whether colin powell should leave the party and i don't th
? it is not unusual within the traditions of our country to have the challenger engage. we do that on foreign policy. they get briefings. governor romney has been included and offered to talk to the management infrastructure. if governor romney were to win, there would be briefings before he became president. it was not a political question. i think it was a fair question. i think what we saw was governor christie's desire to show everyone how strongly he is a political, which, as you said, makes him look political. >> having worked for a lot of politicians, i don't think we should always read into everyone's motives. of yisly, there is politics. at the end of the day, chris christie is is aware of it. his number one priority has to be to people of new jersey that he is working on this. having an event with mitt romney would seem very political. i think he had the right response. maybe he was a bit more confrontational than i would be. the substance of this is the right one. the fact that we have politicians reaching across the aisle is something we should separate and start looking at their motives
. >> we're watching the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> october 16th. at the second presidential debate, romney and obama face off and highlight the now official charges and countercharges over whether president obama took the benghazi attacks and by implication the islamic terror threat in general seriously enough. >> as soon as we found out that the benghazi consulate was being overrun, was on the phone with my national security team. >> the president the day after that happened, flies to las vegas for a political fundraiser. >> the day after the attack, governor, i stood in the rose garden. and i told the american people that this was an act of terror. and the suggestion that anybody in my team would play politics or mislead when we lost four of our own, governor, is offensive. >> took the president 14 days before the called the attack in ben gas si an act of terror. >> get the transcript. >> six days later. >> the first question and it concerns libya. >> october 22nd. the final presidential debate. >> governor romney, you said this was an example of an american p
. and the national media is not demanding answers nor did governor romney during the foreign policy debate. by the way, despite that interview with mr. obama, the factor at 8:00 last night beat the nbc program rock center in total audience, which is kind of amazing. getting back to libya. my view is this: muslim terrorists were tracking ambassador stevens. they had heavy weapons at the ready. and saw an opening to attack in benghazi. there is nothing spontaneous about that. the cia was caught napping, then froze when all hell broke loose. apparently not understanding rescue options or what was at stake. when the damage and death became fully known, the obama administration tried to manage it, rather than report it. and so chaos developed. people like u.n. ambassador susan rice, as well as white house spokesperson jay carney did not assess the situation correctly to the public. talking points believes carney and rice were told by the public what to say but by whom? that is the question that brian williams should have asked. because president obama has to know the answer to that it is uncon
's sort of how he's promising it. and foreign policy i do fear the hawkishness of the line that governor romney's taken. talking about going to war with iran if they even have the capability to build a nuclear weapon. that's preemptive. and i think that's a very dangerous pattern to go down. we did that before with iraq. i don't think preemptive war is anything more than war. >> it's always food. it's always food. i'm obsessed with a place in east elmhurst queens, a french pastry shop. i've gone there the last two weekends, including taking a big subway ride and hiking over there. it's not near a subway. "argo" i loved the movie. go ben aflex. i think he did a great job. i'm going to be seeing "lincoln." obviously love doris kearns goodwin's book. >> we don't know which one of these guys will be marching towards the finish line on november 6th. this is just you go around the country and people, you go to airports, and the dollar bill didn't come with it but it just sort of seems a nice touch. don't you think? >> we'll have more of my conversation today at 12:00 noon. we're going to talk
that the president is doing a good job. this is sort of like a foreign policy crisis where you don't step in it and you actually maybe even step aside and i think that could be a sign of leadership as well. but he's certainly not hurting himself by awkwardly campaigning as if nothing was going on. >> i think that's right. i think mitt romney did the only thing he could do which is to lay low. a grace period, i guess, and the president is going to be back on the campaign trail. mitt romney didn't even mention the name yesterday. perhaps he learned from his mistake, if you believe that they were a mistake, from the attack in benghazi. >> clearly i think the campaign thought he jumped in far too quickly in benghazi and that was a move they regretted. he was out yesterday in florida campaigning. there were attacks against barack obama's leadership style and reference to fema and the role of government in federal emergencies. but i think this quantifies -- i think it changes the race in the sense that it changes the tone of the race in the last few days and i think the president has managed --
policy. obama had what the public regards as generally a pretty successful foreign policy. libya proved to be one place they could go in, because there was a -- there was a mishandling of the events right after the assassination, the murder of the ambassador. they didn't know what was happening. they got out some wrong information. but the idea that there was some kind of purposeful, you know, cover-up, that there was deception or that there was some kind of treasonous behavior, many of these implications go beyond clumsiness and incompeten incompetence. it is fair to say there was a fair amount of clumsiness and incompetence. to go to deceit and deception and treason, it seems to me there is absolutely no evidence for this. we don't know whether there was -- whether it was fair to say they were prepared for this. remember, we have 265 consulates and diplomatic postings around the world. on any given week, 25 of them asked for more security and, you know, you got limited resources, you make decisions you can in retrospect we should have reinforced benghazi. but in retrospect, it is not
an economic to social and foreign policy. who said that? >> hot actress kate walsh. >> stephanie: might be a good guess, but no [ buzzer ] . jonathan chase. jim who said, it's noteworthy numerous -- he was one of the very few voices determined to see many items through. anxious about a bailout weary public argued against restructuring the auto industry and on libya, posture or do something, he aloned forced them to draw an option that would prevent disaster. who said that? >> osama bin laden. >> stephanie: very bad guess. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: who said the decisions are very popular now, like george w. bush presented with a similar option did not strike a similar option. who said that? >> charles nelson riley. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: no, jonathan chase. i love this article. don't you love it, chris? >> i love it. it's fabulous. >> it's a fabulous program. >> stephanie: sometimes i feel like i'm losing my mind. i done understand why anybody cannot -- we played that fast talker yesterday asking for a link to it -- >> it's on your facebook page. >> stephanie: i have
its economy back from the brink of disaster and has made a decent fist of foreign policy. this newspaper would stick with the devil it knows and re-elect him. "time magazine" chose not to go the traditional route. instead the weekly published two opinion pieces. each making the case for one of the candidates. also, printed three front covers this week. yes. you can pick up three. one focuses on the superstorm. the other illustrates the presidential race. you can see it here. michael crowley is time's deputy chief -- washington bureau chief and, michael, first of all, it's really interesting. it's very unique. we've seen a lot of mups and magazines go one way or the other. why did "time" decide to go this route with basically two endorsements? >> well, look, you know, voters have been bombarded in the closing weeks of this campaign with negative ads, you know, big bird, benghazi, issues that may be important but are narrow, so here's an opportunity to zoom back, go back to first principles, what are the cases for the two candidates fundamentally, and i think it's really us
debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been
's foreign policy. he said there's no obama doctrine that i know of. i don't know that anybody has enunciated a world view the way that henriy kissen jer did in hs day or even james baker. there's no great love there for the president of the united states. but clearly he has endorsed him. >> yes. and also he focused on climate change which i thought was interesting. >> right. >> it comes after this huge storm and there's a big fight going on right now. and the scientists are out there saying, listen, this is climate change these sort of huge storms we haven't seen the likes of before. this is the result of climate change. and this is clearly a major who believes that his city was hard hit as a result of climate change. and so, you know, again not surprising the timing is sort of interesting to me. but it does fit in with what's been going on in new york and that he spent so much time talking about climate change. and that was what he was actually criticizing mitt romney for was romney's -- what he sees as romney's flip-flop on things like coarbon emissions. >> obviously critically important i
